Best Place to See the Sunset in Myanmar

Let’s go toTaungthaman Lake in the Amarapura town of Mandalay city, Myanmar to enjoy its well known  magical beauty. The place is considered one of the most beautiful sunset spots in the world.

Every afternoon, there are lots of cars and buses bringing tourists to this area to enjoy sunset. Right next to the lake are the local young men immersing in the water, fishing and netting, although the weather is quite cool. There are some young people around the fire to warm and dry the longyi after soaking in the water for hours. Perhaps because of the shallow water, the fishermen have to drop the fishing rod in a far location where the water floods their breasts.

Nearby, there are long strips of land on the edge of the lake where the people here grow vegetables, besides, the white buffalos are still busy plowing the soil. Far away, the tower quietly reflect themselves on the water. The water, sometimes is calm, sometimes ripples because of the light breeze gliding across the lake. Some boats are cruising with tourists. The beauty of Lake Taungthaman has left many beautiful impressions in the hearts of tourists during the trip to Myanmar.

The world's longest teak bridge over Taungthaman Lake gradually emerges, like aahorizontal road connecting the two green patches amidst a vast space. It is the soul of the famous watercolor painting in the sacred land in the south of Mandalay.

The bridge is named U Bein with an ancient, simple and durable architecture in the suburbs of Mandalay. Surprisingly, the bridge is made of teak wood without a nail. The mayor named U Bein took advantage of the excess teak wood in the ancient palace left in Amarapura and erected the U Bein Bridge in 1850, after the emperor Mindon left the capital. On the bridge there are also sheltered stations and wooden chairs for people to rest between the 1,200 meters long bridge.

Some of the wooden piers on the bridge have been termites, and the effects of nature have partially destroyed it, many concrete columns are replaced, instead of the wooden ones. However, due to the popularity of the U Bein Bridge and the attention of tourists in the world, local authorities here are also considering using teak instead of other concrete columns.

The bridge currently only allows pedestrians ,visitors and peddlers alike to serve visitors. The number of visitors who set foot on the bridge today is no less than the number of locals crossing the bridge. The city can not count how many people visit the bridge every day, but this is the destination that any visitors to the Myanmar tour can not ignore.

The late afternoon is the time that pink purple color covers the space and river. Many people who like to watch the sunset concentrate on many points around the U Bein Bridge area to watch. People standon the bridge, at the foot of the bridge, some rent boats to the river to watch the bridge, while the local people mainly stand at the foot of bridge or on the boat to look up at the bridge and enjoy the momentswhen the sun slowly sink down behind wooden stakes.

The time from the beginning of the red sun till it totally disappear that visitors can see directly only lasts for 30 minutes. Everything is silent, the breaths are lighter, the boats on the U Bein River are cruisingwithout a sound. Everyone around seems to regret something. Perhaps, the sunset on U Bein River has left a beautiful image in the hearts of every visitor, and tomorrow they are no longer on U Beinbridge to enjoy the beauty of the sunset in the afternoon. Maybe so, everyone is quiet because they are afraid the sun will fall down quickly or affect the viewing space of people around here.

Although it is famous for the best place to enjoy sunset, the local people here claim that, this space is also ideal when watching the sunrise, starting a new day with the busy work in the present life. Come here every morning you will feel the peace, tranquility, simplicity, all that has drawn a beautiful picture of the U Bein River. Please once travel to Myanmar to have a chance to watch the sunset on the U Bein River and feel the beauty of this place.

This is also a favorite place for young couples. They bring each other here to enjoy the peaceful feeling and enjoy the romantic sunset that nature offers. Probably because of this, the U Bien bridge is also called "Love Bridge" by local people.

Best Sunset Views in Bagan

Bagan is a land of over 2,000 temples, many of which are hundreds of meters above the ground. Bagan is an ideal place to enjoy the sunset. There are many towers selected for watching the sunset, for example Anada Tower, Thatbyinnyu ... because these towers have good locations and suitable height. However, most visitors come here only love to go to Shwesandaw, the highest ancient temple in Bagan.

Bagan is a popular destination for tourists visiting Myanmar. Every afternoon, almost all visitors, along with some locals living in this ancient city, climb up to the top of the towers, look at the sun going down to enjoy the most spectacular scene of the day.

On fine days, around 2am to 3pm, along Shwesandaw roads, you can see cars, bikes, motorbikes or even horse carts ... bring visitors to the temple. Passing hundreds of stairs to the roof of the hundred-meter hightemple, choose the most suitable place among the sunshine in the afternoon without any shade, no one complaints. Everyone prepares the camera and the most advantageous position to be able to take pictures. Everyone waits patiently.

 Waiting time is long, but the momentswhen the sun goes down on the plateau quickly passes. The rays of light suddenly light up and quickly fade into the gray of the late afternoon. The temple is now crowded with visitors standing and sitting on all stairs and on all four sides of the temple. People watch the last light of the day, people runback and forth to chase the last moments of the sunset. In Shwesandaw, every afternoon as well as any season, probably except for the rainy day, it’s always crowded with local people and tourists coming to enjoy sunset.

Travel to Myanmar, visitors can come many times a day or week to explore the beauty of the temple at different times. Only in Bagan can one enjoy the sunset from the hills, through the woods and the sparkling river that stretches over the temples.

Getting to Bagan, watching the sunset is something that most visitors can not ignore. Nevertheless, not everyone experiences the sunset on other ancient temples. In Bagan, most are towered but not all temples have stairs leading to the top floor. Therefore, only tour guides, local people and ones who know the place very well can point out which temples are the best place for sunset viewing among more than 2,000 temples scattered throughout the plains.

There are other temples with beautiful sunset view. Let’s imagine, after crossing the craggy, cramped and winding staircase, in front of you is a vast expanse of plains, the soaring temples stand out in the trees. . From the horizon, each golden sunlight falls down over and over, fading and falling.

Bagan is so attractive to visitors from the simplest things and it really leaves visitors with a deep impression. For every visitor, such sunset views are enough to keep in their heart beautiful and unique images of the land of ancient temples.

Learn about Ancient Tradition of Long-neck Women in Myanmar

Residents here believe that wearing rings to prevent the beast from biting on the neck, which reduces the beauty of women. They also believe that, wearing many rings is attractive to the men. Therefore, a woman can wear 16 kg of rings on the neck.

This practice seems to have disappeared when the community opened its doors to tourists, due to the influence of Western cultures, according to Channel News Asia.

"Most young women do not wear rings anymore because of the influence of modern culture," said Mr. Mu Lone in Pan Pet village.

Pan Pet is a village with more than 1,000 inhabitants. Decades ago, armed conflicts separated the village from the outside world, making it the most remote place in Myanmar. In 2012, Pan Pet opened to welcome visitors.

Today, the girls in the village feel free when they unleash their rings. Some still stick to this custom not to preserve tradition, but for commercial reasons in tourism.

"What we see is just outside. It seems that it is only possible to keep the custom, not to keep the spirit of tradition, "said Pascal Khoo Thwe, an expert at the International Trade Center.
